Moji Olaiya: Family Appreciates Fans, Denies Poisoning, Establishes Trust Fund For Daughters

With the funeral rites over for late actress, Moji Olaiya, her family has released a statement thanking everyone—friends, fans and colleagues for the show of love.

Also, the statement signed by Moji’s brother, Femi, urged the general public to dismiss rumours of the deceased to have died as a result of poison—it was God’s will for her to depart.

The statement reads:
“The Olaiya Family appreciate the immense outpouring of love and affection the public showed the family since the sudden and untimely death of our beloved Sister, Moji Olaiya, and the huge support we received for her burial. Her friends, fans, colleagues in the movie industry and the general public displayed an uncommon show of support and kindness towards the family in our grieving time.

We are grateful indeed for your condolence messages, visits, gifts and other forms of support, we are indeed very grateful to have such wonderful people. We also want to use this medium to specially thank the Burial committee and all those who were involved in helping to raise funds for the return of Moji’s remains to Nigeria, we are eternally grateful to you for rising above the grief to support the family. This is also appreciating Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, erstwhile governor of Lagos State for his humane and philanthropic gesture in providing the required funds to transport Moji’s corpse back to Nigeria. Thank you, your Excellency. Indeed, Moji received burial befitting queens because of all your efforts.

We wish to use this opportunity to debunk claims circulating on social media that Moji was poisoned by a friend in Canada. An autopsy was conducted; the autopsy reports indicated that our dear sister died of a different cause that can be termed natural medical cause. It is not the desire of the family to have anyone implicated in her death having seen the autopsy reports, therefore, we appeal to friends, fans and the general public to accept Moji’s death as an act of God though rather unfortunate.
We are of the view that some people do have genuine interest to assist and support the children Moji left behind, we, therefore advise that all donations should be made payable to the Trust Fund set up for her children. The details of the Trust fund Account below:
